[mythtv-users] Can't get remote to talk to mythtv

Hi all -

I have everything just about working.  Myth does what it needs to do; I
still have to work on getting transcode to work correctly, but that's
something I can deal with later.

My problem right now is that the remote doesn't seem to work (well, Myth
doesn't respond to it; I do see codes being transmitted with mode2
running).

The daemons are running:

[rcs at vader: ~]$ ps aux | grep lirc
root      2769  0.0  0.0  11300   724 ?        Ss   16:17   0:00 lircd
--driver=default --device=/dev/lirc
root      2916  0.0  0.0   2624   248 ?        Ss   16:20   0:00 lircmd
rcs      11297  0.0  0.0   4144   708 pts/4    R+   19:44   0:00 grep lirc

/etc/sysconfig/lircd has it loading up the right modules:

[rcs at vader: ~]$ /sbin/lsmod | grep lirc
lirc_imon              15300  2
lirc_dev               16960  1 lirc_imon
usbcore               125628  10
lirc_imon,usbmouse,usbkbd,usb_storage,ohci_hcd,usbhid,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd


The system:

SilverStone LM14B Case with VFD/IR receiver and iMON remote
Abit NF8-V motherboard
Athlon-64 single core, 2.4GHz overclocked slightly (2.55GHz)
pcHDTV 5500 tuner cards x 2
Creative Audigy sound card
2GB DDR 400 RAM
2x320G SATA HDD
1x400G PATA HDD
1x160G PATA HDD; 789G as an LVM group for Myth recordings, the rest for
other stuff.
OS: Mandriva 2006, updated, for x86_64; running Linus's kernel 2.6.18rc5
MythTV 0.20a, installed from 64-bit RPMs (as far as I can see, seems to
have been compiled with all options enabled).

I have a Harmony 550 remote and would like to eventually use it...but I
have an lircd.conf file specifically for the iMON remote and will try to
get  it working first.

If anyone else can give me a clue as to why Myth doesn't respond to the
remote, I'd appreciate any hints.  Thanks!

Bob
